Research and Ultrasound Journal Club

The Stanford ED Ultrasound program meets quarterly with all faculty, residents and students involved in Ultrasound research to discuss all active research studies and review an Ultrasound related journal article. Below are the articles most recently discussed at our ED research meetings.
